Some of you know my friend Samantha. She is now living in Australia and is expecting her first child. She is a substitute(causal) teacher at a school there. I had a friend ask to see a picture of her. This was take at the beginning of the month she was 28 weeks. She is trying to finish up the school term - pray for her. Remember that it is winter is there. The fella with her is her husband Karl a very sweet guy.

Future Concert Pianist...Maybe

When Aaron goes to his abuela's he likes to play on the piano. Maybe we have a future pianist. Hopefully he will like practicing better than his mother did.

Walking...Sort of

For a few weeks now Aaron has been getting closer and closer to walking. He would cruise from furniture to chair around the room. He had become a serious stair climber and was to the point of holding one finger and walking. He was not quite ready to let go though but this week he has decided that walking might be okay but it is still not the best form of locomotion. His first excursion was between Perry and me after which he proceeded to fall over and hit his head. This damped excitement for a few days, but he decided that he would show off for the caseworker and take a few steps. This of course resulted in clapping and cheering. Now he is occasionally walking a few steps and even did so a little at church. So we will see if he becomes a serious walker over the next few weeks. My baby is not going to be baby much longer...does this officially make him a toddler. He definitely toddling but I am not sure I want him to be a toddler.

We are discovering that every country has it's own requirements. In Korea they want pictures. We are to have two pictures in church clothes and then some pictures of you doing things that you enjoy. So here are a couple of those pictures.

This picture is for Mom. I finally put up the bathroom border after having the paper since we moved into the house.

Life's Unexpected Joys

Well some of you may have heard through the grapevine so we will make it official on the blog. An opportunity has arisen for Perry, Aaron and me to adopt again. It is a little boy and he is from Korea. He is presently 3 and 1/2 which means Aaron is getting a big brother. We have begun the paper work to make this possible and hoping and praying that there will be no road blocks. We have been told it will take till next summer but we are hoping that if we are quick with our paperwork it might be sooner. So you will be suffering through adoption updates once again. Please pray for us.

Roweena Wilson

Some of you may remember the quilt from August that a group of comfort quilters made. Well after a postponement today is her surgery for her heart. If you want to learn a little more of her story I am providing a link to an Indiana newspaper. The date of the surgery is wrong due to some pulled teeth that moved things back. I hope you enjoy her story.
